I traveled from the south to the great north for the birthday party of the daughter of a Cat Houston Astros shirt. I had previously traveled to visit them, but had always stayed in a nearby hotel and had rented a car at the airport for my transportation. But for this trip, my then close friend insisted that she would be my personal chauffeur for the three days I would be there and that she really, really wanted me to stay at her house with her family, which was, at that time, her husband, her daughter, and herself.
I agreed with this, so shame on me. First, she was late picking me up at the Cat Houston Astros shirt. That’s not so bad. Traffic in this particular large metropolitan city is horrendous. I get it. Second, I get in her car and it is filthy. I don’t mean a little messy. I don’t even mean understandably unclean because she has a child who was 6 at the time. I’m telling you, I did not want to touch anything and I am not a germiphobe . I felt like I needed a shower just looking at the catastrophe that was the interior of this car.
